DOD is working with the State Department, partners, and allies to evacuate U.S. and Afghan citizens from Afghanistan.
The Army plans to hire additional civilians within and outside the force to help process Afghan evacuees at different locations across the country.
Task Force Eagle, based at Fort Lee, Va., is still playing a key role in providing transportation, temporary housing, medical screening, and general support for Afghan evacuees.
An ''instant city'' has been created at Ramstein Air Base Germany for Afghan evacuees who are headed to the United States for permanent relocation. More instant cities have been created at other military locations.
The Department of Defense provides the military forces needed to deter war and ensure our nation's security.
